Union of South Africa gave indication of balking at the principle of prefer ence tariff dealing as the imperial conference settled down to work today In the objection of the Irish free state as by Dean T OKelly head of the delegation there was an echo of the brewing tariff war between the free state and Great Britain over President de Valeras refusal to pay land annuities Special difficulties OKelly said have recently arisen which ef feet about 85 per cent of our exter nal trade nnd which may involve substantial changes in the form and direction of that trade as well as the economic structure of the country Could Not Subscribe N C Havenga South African minister of finance emphasized that South Africa could not subscribe to the theory of a self contained and isolated British empire None of its members he said can exist by trade within the com monwealth alone If our industries are to survive tariff walls are in evitable but it is our duty to gee how far they can be lowered

Germanys delegate informed the world disarmament conference today that his country will not par ticipate in further deliberations about this summers recess until the conference clearly recognizes Ger
